Sustainable Schools Program
The Sustainable Schools Program (SSP) is a government initiative to improve the economic and environmental sustainability of schools and work towards creating Low Carbon Schools. The program will reduce electricity costs through energy efficiency improvements and renewable energy installations.
Two hundred and forty schools (PDF 296KB) across South Australia have been selected for the program.
The $15 million investment in solar panels and energy efficiency improvements will:
- reduce school electricity costs
- reduce electricity consumption
- reduce carbon emissions
- create jobs for South Australians.
SSP works will begin in 2017 with anticipated completion of all works by the end of 2018.
